Conserving Fish and Wildlife – Now and in the Future

The Chesapeake Bay Field Office is responsible for conserving endangered and threatened species, refuges, migratory birds, and fisheries in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Growth and development can adversely modify or destroy waterways, forests, and wetlands that these trust resources depend on.

Because these responsibilities occur in a large geographic area (64,000 square miles), and we have multiple issues and limited resources, the office developed a Strategic Habitat Conservation Plan to decide where our restoration, conservation and policy efforts should be directed. The plan identifies focus areas, priority species and conservation actions to guide our work through 2016.
